The Romani people, commonly called Gypsies are an ethnic group of people originally from India.
They have faced persecution discrimination and genocidal policies since entering Europe in the early 1100's or so.
They have been denied their traditional means of livelihood and then are condemned for surviving.
Even today they are subjected to pograms across Eastern Europe and forced deportations from Western Europe.

I am appalled by the virulent racism evidenced on this site.
It's interesting that the site rejects inside jokes yets allows this murderous slander of an entire group of people.
I am appalled and outraged by the virulent racism shown in most of these submissions.
A Gypsy is a member of an ethnic group of people.

A dirty little thief that lives in a caravan and moves from car park to car park with no aim in life whatsoever, gypsy's (A.K.A pykey gyppo) are often chavs (the scum of the earth) as they have no money and can only afford cheap sportswear.

Gypsy's are the descendants of hippies although gypsy's cannot afford weed.

Gypsy's will refuse to move off your land untill the police move them on.
A gypsy cant afford houses and don't want to pay tax.

A member of a people that arrived in Europe in migrations from northern India and egypt around the 14th century, now also living in North America and Australia. Many Gypsy groups have preserved elements of their traditional culture, including an itinerant existence and the Romany language. And as described above their name has been shortened and cropped down to gypsy and that 'little egypt' is now turkey ... etc etc.... but I know from Experience being half French & half Greek, i spent a lot of time in europe France in particular... and i can remember listening to these gypsies jamming out on the street until all hours of the night, and as a kid I would just sit, watch and listen intranced by the music.... I was in heaven, always happy music even on a sad song.... ironicly enough I have heard peoples misfortunes, being robbed, and assaulted, I think that Marvin Gaye said it best "Nothing from nothing leaves nothing so you had to do something.." because I've eaten dinner with the same paople who robbed you.... Sat and listened to their guitars cry, laugh , and sing...... Pick up a Gypsy Kings album.... along with some books on european culture.... Turn of the TV and READ!!!!....
My example of this music i speak of is the GYPSY KINGS.... south of france!! WHAT UP!!! I SEE YOU!!!
The revolution will not be televised!!

Don't listen to all these racist bullshit stereo types, I'm a Gypsy and I'm not a "bad" person at all, I don't steal or scam people.

There are two types of Gypsies out there, there are the ones who still live by their traditions (speak the Rom language, don't date outside their race, work as psychics, etc) and there are the ones like me who live just like everyday people work 9-5, go to church, school, etc.
Not all Gypsies are thieves and liars just like not all blacks are ghetto and dangerous, and not all white people are bisexual pedophiles.

A group of people that usually prides themselves on being "gypsys".They do have style. However they usually dont work and consistently live off of government aid. usually in city areas, they go from chicago, to vegas, to detroit and rarely befriend anyone who isnt in some way connected to their family. Steal, cheat, lie...even to one another...Think a mob movie but with fewer blondes. Vendictive and mean...but they always believe they are right.
The gypsys wouldnt accept her so they broke up.

Plural for gypsy. Nomadic people who travel europe doing performing arts. Alternately spelled 'gypsies'.
Gypsys came to town and performed a tradtional flamenco dance for the people.
